Calories 19kcal


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • cup (70g) finely chopped or grated yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 3 tablespoons (or more) finely chopped fresh basil


  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, oregano, and tomato paste and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Add the tomatoes and hemp seeds, scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze the tomato paste. Once sauce reaches a simmer, lower the heat to low and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in basil. Enjoy!


Use a really good canned tomato like San Marzano. It is the main ingredient so don’t skimp on it! You'll definitely taste the difference.
Storage suggestions:
  • Allow to come to room temperature then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
  • To freeze - cool completely in the fridge and portion into freezer-safe containers. I love using the tray above. Will keep for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, thaw in the fridge overnight.
